Novak Djokovic Versus Nick Kyrgios: Kyrgios Speaks
He said “We definitely have a bit of a bromance now, which is weird”. “Everyone knows there is no love lost for a while there. I think it was healthy for the sport. “I think every time we played each other, there was hype around it. It was interesting for the media, the people watching, all that. “I felt like I was almost the only player and someone to stand up for him with all that drama at the Australian Open.
“I feel like that’s where respect is kind of earned. Not on the tennis court, but I feel like when a real-life crisis is happening and someone stands up for you.”We actually message each other on DMs in Instagram now and stuff, it’s real weird. Actually, earlier in the week, he was like ‘hopefully I’ll see you Sunday’.”
During the interview of Djokovic’s victory over Norrie Cameron, the question about his bromance with Kyrgios was pushed to him. However he said “I don’t know if I can call it a bromance, yet, but we definitely have a better relationship than what it was probably prior to January this year”. “But when it was really tough for me in Australia, he was one of the very few players that came out publicly and supported me and stood by me. That’s something I truly appreciate. So I respect him for that a lot.”
Kyrgios will be the first Australian to play a men’s singles final. However, on the manicured lawns at the All England Club since Mark Philippoussis in 2003. However he enjoys a winning record against Djokovic. Also, having beaten him in Acapulco and Indian Wells both times in 2017.
